Gala's are major fundraisers for the Carson Graham PAC. The gaming grants we receive from the provincial government can be spent only on extracurricular items and must be spent within BC. The money raised through the gala allows us to support the school community in other ways, such as buying equipment for classrooms or helping teams fund out-of-province trips.

The gala's theme changes from year to year, but one thing remains the same: it's always a night of food, music, friends, and fun!

The 2014-2015 gala was a huge success, raising $22,000! Here's a message from the Co-Chairs of the gala committee:

We are very thankful to have such great parents at our school. I would like to take the opportunity to thank those who stepped up to help with the incredibly successful Denim & Diamonds Spring Gala we held on April 11, 2015.

The main committee put in several hours of planning and brainstorming. This consisted of Michelle Dunn, Robin Leskiw, Gill Case, Chris Duggan, Amy Maier, Jen Curleigh, Faith Mellenger, Mary Charleson, Sandra Tweed, Patricia Howie, and Trish Scott.  We are also thankful for those parents (Rob Olson, Christie Sacre, Jamie Allan, Lindsay Dawkins, Greg Tweed, Mark Heieis, Julie Rogers, Lane Oseen, Ian Scott, and Debra Elliott) and the handfuls of students who helped out before, during, or after the event.

Over the past few years, Emma and I have been very blessed with having a great team to work with, and this year was no different. From the beginning of the planning process right up to announcing the funds we raised, this team has been nothing but impressive to work alongside. 

Thanks everyone, for making it fun. We are already looking forward to next year!

Laurie Oseen and Emma Tymm-Nash
